No change - emergency list looks like a seniors day out.

And not a 'whipping boy' amongst them...

No Gawn, Jackson or TMac. 

On a positive note it's a chance for Weed to step up and play a big one.

Well they said Mitch.Brown is on stand by. He'd be on stand by anyway that's how it works.

I’m hearing Late change: Dogga out with pcl strain

M Brown in. 

Ruck Weed and promote JVR, Mitch goes missing in the forward line at AFL level. All well and good to reward effort but pointless in Mitch's case as he will let you down at AFL level.

Mitch has done okay on the rare occasions he’s been given an opportunity. It’s true that he didn’t shine against  Collingwood when the team was very much under the pump with multiple injuries but quite a few others also let us down.

He came back to the VFL last week and was on fire kicking 6.6 so I think he deserves a chance. The question if he plays is which of the Browns plays the second ruck role and which plays key forward? Or do they have a bit of a merry go round  with Weid and both Browns sharing the ruck and forward duties between them?

I’d be bringing Tomlinson we need a big body to help Weed in the ruck. Not saying Tommo good in the ruck but just need size.

If Weed gets injured we are rooted

* things I never thought I’d say

Don't understand how Mitch Brown is one of the emergencies when he was tried for 2 games and was found wanting.

The emergency list is never chosen on the basis of the next best four players. There's always a mix to enable coverage of onballers, key position players and ruckmen. Presumably the match committee believes Mitch Brown is the better key position or ruck option than van Rooyen and, because of injuries, there's no-one else. I would have expected any one of Turner, Joel Smith or Daw (who, if he hadn't been injured may not yet have retired) would have been selected ahead of M Brown.

My first thought on reading this earlier today was how the heck did the news get into the public domain so quickly. Do we have a rat feeding journos info or was Dogga just gormless enough to mention it in conversation to someone.

The last I heard was that Dogga was travelling to Adelaide to test there. I imagine it’s hard to keep a football secret in Adelaide, particularly an opposition fitness test.

Tomlinson?

Has he ever rucked?
I would be tempted to play Chandler or JVR in front of M Brown.

TBH we have had ruck dominance for almost 20 years and the opposition mids became experts at taking it away. Hope our guys were watching how it's done.

Far more worried about which forward line will show up tomorrow

Wow in the space of 2 matches the Weid has gone from not in the side to No.1 ruckman!

FWIIW. The last player I can recall who went from a struggling full forward into the ruck was Graham Teasdale at South Melbourne.

Won a Brownlow in a dominant season. Not saying Weid is as good but what's the harm in giving him a run. He has footy smarts just not enough oomph.
